It’s difficult to put into words how much I learned from her. I’m raising a glass or three later. :(

In a perfect world, I’d have a Stanza 4x4 Wagon, this, a matching/equivalent 810 Maxima wagon (I like the colony ships idea) & then I’d start with the sports cars. Read more

Counterpoint - this is vastly more capable than any Tesla.  This car has paint & the verifiable build quality of a Versa.

I have a 5t rooted with Magisk, you can change anything you really want to if you learn to reflash these devices. Read more

I have no doubt the V60 is a better car, but the V50 gas mileage is actually awesome. In boost it’s terrible but in cruise control on highways it’s awesome. Read more

Another P1 Volvo most likely, C30 or FWD V50

Any 95+ manual Trooper I’d say, better V6 by then & hefty Isuzu axle stuff.

For what it’s worth, all the automatic Volvos I’ve ever driven were geared very nicely.  Also, only run these cars on 91 octane or more.

Well I did say off boost; when I drive like an automatic Volvo driver on cruise control in 6th the little V50 is nearly as efficient as the NA 2.5 5 cylinders. Read more

Very very good. I drive a blue one, parts are in easy supply. I would hold out for a manual one. Not sure about the 5 speed auto but my 6 speed AWD one gets 36 highway MPG when I’m not in boost. I’ve put over 30k very hard miles on mine & never been stranded once.

I have a Manual V50, now it’s time for a 5 speed 9-5 Aero with AC seats to go with it. The Volvo may be the better daily but the Saabs can be made much faster. Read more

If I had 100,000$ sitting around I would buy this yesterday & swap in any of quite a few Toyota engines.

Chevy swap!? I’m well aware of the advantages but I would want original mechanicals. I’ve never even seen one of these at all. It’s surprising to me that this isn’t something of a concours project. Read more

I would actually need a Crosstrek Coupe for AWD hypermiling purposes, were I not so concerned about the cheap boxer’s oil consumption. On second thought, I could go for a Fit or Civic HR (whatever Honda builds to go after the Ecosport & Venue); if that thing gets a manual.
